Have you got your eye set on a career in Human Resource Management? Are you interested in the influence of psychology on business? If you want to learn how to get the best out of people then what better subject to learn alongside HR than psychology.

This popular distance learning degree puts an understanding of people at the heart of how a business can achieve success. With most of us spending the majority of our lives working in various organisations, people with this combination of skills and knowledge are of huge value in the workplace.

These two disciplines sit together like two sides of the same coin. One looks at the behaviour of people at an individual level, the other at an organisational level. You will be able to explore fascinating topics such as how HR can contribute to an organisation’s success, understand patterns of behaviour in people, and how to navigate English employment and contract law

We make sure you get the chance to apply what you learn to a variety of real-life situations that can add real value to your career.
